Celebrate youth who are making a difference in our community.

"Service Above Self" by Surrey Youth

We are thrilled to announce that the 2024 SASSY Awards showcase, held on May 7 at the Surrey Arts Centre, was a tremendous success! Over 160 attendees came out to celebrate the outstanding achievements of Surrey Youth, making it a truly memorable evening.

We are grateful for the overwhelming support and enthusiasm of the community, and would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this event possible. We are already looking forward to next year's SASSY Awards showcase and continuing to recognize the exceptional contributions of our young people.

Six awards were presented in the categories of:

  • Arts & Culture Leadership
  • Overcoming Adversity
  • Community Service
  • Youth Leadership
  • Environmental Leadership
  • Sports & Recreation Leadership

An award recipient is selected in each of the six categories. The recipient will receive $1500 and a donation of $500 will be made to a charity of their choice.

Two finalists are also selected in each category. The finalists will receive $500 and a donation of $250 will be made to the registered charity of their choice.

Proceeds from the SASSY Awards support Rotary youth programs like Interact and Rotaract, where youth from our community lead projects locally and globally to help make the world a better place.
